The population of Agua Prieta increased from 20,754 to 60,000 between 1970 and 1998, due to significant growth in the maquiladora industry in the area. This growth resulted in a backlog of urban infrastructure and public services, especially with respect to public maintenance.
This project included the following components:
This project will help reduce environmental and health risks by adequately disposing of the city’s municipal garbage and by covering the existing open air dump. Reduced smoke and odors will also help the neighboring city of Douglas, Arizona, comply with U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency air quality standards.
